Sweet aroma, pours a ruby/tawny color, with a small short lasting head. Very watery tasting Belgian Ale, with faint floral and spices taste. An Average Ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a small white head. The head does not linger and the beer only leaves a few lacings on the glass. The aroma is a little weak but I detect some hops and yeastiness. Mouthfeel is a little thin and carbonation is low, the flavor is alightly malty sweet with a watery, slightly bitter finish with hints of yeast and spices that only serve to tease you and make you think how much better this beer could have been. This is definitely one of the weakest Belgian ales I have had. It is a little watery and fairly bland. Unimpressive.

Not very good. Tastes yeasty, not much aroma. Look nice and rich, but flavor is lacking and dissapointing. Very watery, bland.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 Wow. Had on tap in its proper glass. Wonderful smokey cinnamon appearance with a head that looked like it had been dusted with cocoa. Great spicey flavor with a dry finish. Excellent.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2003 why do people drink unpasteurized beer that has travelled around the world and talk about the flavors that they are tasting. If you let a wine bottle get warm it is known that the wine is damaged. Due to the fact wine is higher alcohol than beer makes it travel easier and more stable than beer. So why dont beer importers take the same care to handle beer like wine. Because it would cost them money and you would have to pay more. So that is why europeans drink beer made in there hometowns. The stupid Americans have alot to learn about beer, bread and cheese! I would gladly pay the difference for good product, but most Americans dont even know what they are looking for, witness this whole webpage. So wise up and demand the best.

On tap. Nice head of deep amber. Very deep malty aroma and taste: bready and toasty. Not as defined as others in the style that I’ve had. Still enjoyable.
